Urinary Tract Infection in Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)As one common symptom of Polycystic Kidney Disease, occasional or frequent urinary tract infection is always a big headache for many PKD patients. Therefore, natural treatments for urinary tract infections have a great significance to improve these patients’ life quality.

As with other people, I believe no PKD patient wants to go to hospital if their healthy problems can be solved at his own home, so today I am here to introduce some home remedies for the prevention and management of UTI.

Consume more cranberry or blueberry

Berries both cranberry and blueberry have got bacteria-inhibiting properties that can help a lot in the treatment of urinary tract infection. Regularly drinking berry juice is one of the earliest natural ways to not only manage your UTI but also help treat PKD. Besides, many other vitamin C enriched food items, such as lemon and orange, also have such a benefit. If you want to know a fruit list in detail, you can leave a message in the below form to me.

Keep your body warm

To stay warm is a useful method to deal with your urinary tract infection. If you feel cold, take a hot shower so your body’s temperature can be back to normal. In your daily life, pay attention to wear clean cotton underwear, skip tight clothing and wear socks to keep your feet warm.

Take showers instead of baths

Soaking in a tub can provide a breeding ground for bacteria so as to worsen your infection. For the same reason, avoid sitting around in wet bathing suits or in a hot tub.

Increase your fluid intake

It has reported that drink a plenty of water is effective to ease UTI and slow down the growth of kidney cysts. Generally, if your Polycystic Kidney Disease hasn’t cause severe kidney damage, you are recommended to drink about 8 glasses of water one daily. What’s more, stiring 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda into 1 cup of water and drinking it is very useful for UTI treatment.

Urinate after sexual life

For PKD patients especially the female, this tip is quite necessary, so don’t skip it, even though you feel tired or would rather snuggle with your partner.

Additionally, many other home remedies can also help prevent and treat urinary tract infection in Polycystic Kidney Disease. If you are tormented by it, welcome to consult our online doctor so they can give you more suggestions timely.
